Perfect Steak and Chips | Jamie at Home


Okay, I’m gonna do this incredible steak
and chips right. First of all when it comes to steaks, my personal opinion is
the best steak for the job isn’t a fillet, it’s not a sirloin, it’s not a
rump, it’s the ribeye right. Inch thick, it’s
got the best flavour, it’s still very tender, you have got that fat in the
middle and I was mucking about the other day and there’s an old technique for
sort of making dry meat tender and that’s by getting fat, by literally
pulling out the fat. If you just pinch it in your hands, what you can do is
actually push it into the steak like that. So really what you’re doing is
increasing the marbling and the flavour. And then you get some nice bits of
rosemary and just sort of break it up with your fingers, put it over the steak
and again push it in to where you’ve pushed that lovely fat. So when the fat
is melting, its melting with uncle rosemary around him and having a bit of a boogie
woogie. So in there like that and then pepper, pepper and steak classic, in there
like that and salt as well. So the ribeye is good and then I’m going to put that
to the side and then here, my grilled chips. Now what I’ve done is I’ve got a
nice sort of slightly waxy potato. I’ve left the skin on, I’ve parboiled it sort
of in centimeter slices for about five, six minutes, just to sort of take the
sort of rawness out of the potato. So essentially they’re 3/4 cooked, but
they’re holding their shape nice and strong. So what I want to do, is get some
rosemary, some sage, just tear it up and then just get a little bit of lemon zest,
just use your knife or a speed peeler just to sort of take those lovely little
bits of yellow skin off the lemon and then some nice extra virgin olive oil, so
get that in there. I want to lightly dress the potatoes in
the olive oil and a nice pinch of salt and a nice pinch of pepper and just get
your hands in and just give them a lovely toss around. So we can get this on
the barbecue now, just lay them down like this and you won’t believe how quick and
how lovely these end up being. And talk about something a bit different as well,
do you know I mean? I’ve got me steak, I’m just gonna literally put a little bit of
olive oil on the steak, and pat it. I don’t want loads of oil just a little
patting of it and then this is ready to cook, get it on that barbie. Let’s just
turn this over here. Look at these chips man, this is great,
really, really good. So what I’m going to do is while these are cooking I’m gonna
make a lovely flavoured oil. I’m gonna do it slightly different to usual. I’m gonna
get myself a nice little bunch of rosemary, you could use thyme, you could
use sage, you could use bay. Get something heavy and blunt, could be like the handle of a
knife or a pestle and mortar thing and then I’m just gonna put it into a bowl
like this. Get yourself some oil because that will transmit the flavour of the
rosemary, get your lemon, just squeeze a little bit in there and I’m just gonna turn
this steak. Look at that, delish and then you use
this as a little bit of a sort of paintbrush really, and you just use this
to sort of flavour, get that you know sort of caramelized cooky, sort of lemon oil flavour
over your chips, beautiful. I think we’re ready to go, get my lovely potatoes, the
most incredible barbecue crisps and then nice bit of steak. Lets have a little feel up,
yeah that’s about medium. Like that. Little wodge of rocket, delish, get our
lovely ketchup and just get it in there. What a dish, that has got to be one of
the best and that is superb mate.

  1. The At Home series is the best Jamie`s ever done,it literally changed my life…showing you how to grow herbs and vegetables,when to harvest them, and simple, non pretentious, brilliant ways to cook them.
    I`m half a farmer during the summer months now thanks to this.

    For people complaining about the ketchup….he`s not putting Heinz on it! he made it himself using top quality tomatoes,onions,garlic ,herbs and spices. Not tomato paste vinegar and 3lbs of sugar.

    Watch the series…it`s brilliant!

  2. I've seen you cook about 4 different steaks. Jamie, you can't cook steak. That's fine, we all have disadvantages. Nobodies perfect… Just move on friendo.

  3. This looks incredible! Jamie, how do you tell if a steak/meat is cooked – or what point it's cooked to – rare, medium rare, well done etc – just by feeling it? I've never come across that before! Could you do a little video teaching us that technique – It's always so hard to tell! xx

  4. haydaaa, ketçap dedin, siktin attın ortalığı be adam, hem rakı nerede? (everything was perfect, aaand you said ketchup, everything craped… also so where raki 😉 😉 😉 good job. )

  5. I swear all these world famous chefs have nothing better to post other than videos from the early 2000s🤣🤣🤣

  6. I will never get tired of watching episodes of Jamie at home! I wish they were more readily available to watch, can you guys make that happen?

  7. That’s the saddest steak and shootist chips I’ve ever seen. What are you too broke to buy a proper steak Jamis. Pathetic.

  8. Тут говорять что ти невкусно готовишь( Мастер шеф професіонали 1 випуск)

  9. He had me till he did the most disgraceful and disrespecting thing u can do to a steak and that’s having ketchup anywhere near it.

  10. Kudos for the ketchup. Purists will scream, but ketchup is an Urcondiment as far as I am concerned. Coming from the deep south here in the USA, ketchup for me is a staple, I buy it in three large jugs at a time, so I never run out, there is always one on the backup food shelf downstairs. Use it on scrambled eggs and cheese. Nothing is better than ketchup with fried potatoes. Sitting here at 4 am because I could not sleep, I am so looking forward to breakfast now in a couple hours.

  11. Hope it tastes better than his pizzas, terrible, no wonder they’re all his restaurants are going down the shitter!

  12. There is no reason to kill animals for food, there is plenty of food in the world that asks for itself. If you are inclined to eat meat, then according to the law of karma you will receive the body of a predator. For the eternal soul to be in such a body means to fall. The soul, having received the human body must devote its life to spiritual self-awareness. For killing a cow, for selling, for eating cow meat, etc., a person will be punished according to the law of karma. The world is full of food (milk, vegetables, fruits, honey, legumes, nuts, herbs), which itself asks in the hands. There is no reason to kill defenseless animals, this is not a civilized life.
